Abstract

A pixel circuit, a driving method therefor and a display apparatus. The pixel circuit comprises: a first reset module (1), a data writing module (2), a compensation module (3), a voltage stabilizer module (4), a driving control module (5), a light-emitting control module (6) and a light-emitting device (D). By means of coordinated work of the various modules, the pixel circuit can compensate the drift of a threshold voltage of the driving control module (5). Therefore, during light-emitting display, a driving current, which is capable of driving the light-emitting device (D) to emit light, is related to the voltage of a data signal, but is not related to the threshold voltage of the driving control module (5) and the voltage of a first reference signal end (VDD), thereby avoiding the influence of the threshold voltage and a voltage drop (IR Drop) on the current flowing through the light-emitting device (D), enabling the working current for driving the light-emitting device (D) to emit light to be kept consistent, and improving the uniformity of image brightness in a display area of a display apparatus.

Description

Pixel circuit, driving method thereof and related device

The present application claims the priority of the Chinese Patent Application No. 201510575125.1 filed on Sep. 10, 2015, the entire disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference.

Technical field

The present invention relates to the field of organic electroluminescence technology, and in particular, to a pixel circuit, a driving method thereof, and related devices.

Background technique

Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) is one of the hotspots in the field of flat panel display research. Compared with liquid crystal displays, OLEDs have the advantages of low power consumption, low production cost, self-illumination, wide viewing angle and fast response. At present, OLEDs in mobile phones, PDAs, digital cameras and other display fields have begun to replace traditional LCD displays. Among them, the pixel circuit design is the core technology content of OLED display, which has important research significance.

Unlike LCDs that use a stable voltage to control brightness, OLEDs are current driven and require a constant current to control illumination. Due to the process process and device aging, etc., the threshold voltage Vth of the driving transistor of the pixel circuit may be non-uniform, which causes the current flowing through each pixel point OLED to change, so that the display brightness is uneven, thereby affecting the whole The display of the image.

1 is a schematic circuit diagram of a prior art pixel circuit. As shown in FIG. 1, a pixel circuit of one capacitor (2M1C) of two existing transistors is taken as an example, and the circuit is composed of one driving transistor M2, one switching transistor M1, and one storage capacitor Cs. When the pixel circuit of a certain row is scanned, the scanning line Scan of the row of pixel circuits inputs a low level signal, the P-type switching transistor M1 is turned on, and the voltage of the data line Data is written to the storage capacitor Cs. When the line scan ends, the signal input by the scan line Scan becomes a high level, the P-type switching transistor M1 is turned off, and the gate voltage stored by the storage capacitor Cs causes the driving transistor M2 to generate a current to drive the OLED, thereby ensuring that the OLED is in a The frame continues to glow. The saturation current formula of the driving transistor M2 is I OLED = K(V SG - V th ) 2 . As described above, the threshold voltage V th of the driving transistor M2 may drift due to process processes and device aging, etc., in addition, due to voltage drop ( The reason for IR Drop) is that the source voltage V S of the driving transistor M2 is also different. This causes the current flowing through each OLED to vary due to the variation of the threshold voltage Vth of the driving transistor and the voltage VDD applied to the source of the driving transistor, resulting in uneven brightness of the image.

In the T2 phase, Scan1=0, Reset1=1, EM=1.

The third switching transistor T3, the fourth switching transistor T4, and the seventh switching transistor T7 are in an on state, and the first switching transistor T1, the second switching transistor T2, the fifth switching transistor T5, and the sixth switching transistor T6 are in an off state.

The voltage of the terminal Data V data , the signal of the first reference signal terminal VDD is transmitted to the second node B through the driving transistor DT of the diode structure, so the voltage of the second node B is V DD +V th , where V DD is the first reference The voltage of the signal terminal VDD, V th , is the threshold voltage of the driving transistor DT.
